Colin Kaepernick was the chosen athlete for Nike to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the brands “Just Do It” campaign.
Kap’s face was front and center with a quote “Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything.
#JustDoIt”. Some people speculated that this could be a sign that the former NFL QB could have some signature apparel with Nike in the works.

ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported out that deal was unlikely. “Nike sources say the company has no plans to give Colin Kaepernick a signature shoe, nor an extensive clothing line, as had been speculated.” wrote Rovell on Twitter.

Though Kaepernick remains out of the league his jersey is still one of the top earners of any athlete. Supporters of Kaepernick purchase the jerseys because now his number is a symbol of social injustice.
